Book Review: Crave Vancouver

Title: Crave Vancouver
Author: crave party
Publisher: crave party
Published: 2008
Pages: 240
Price: $19.95 (CDN)

Crave Vancouver features "over 100 spots and women you need to know in town", with spotlights on everything from boutiques and spas to cafes and publicists. Published by CRAVEcompany a network of businesses that strive to connect entrepreneurs in new ways.
It's exciting to see so many unique Vancouver businesses and the women who own them featured in one book. Many of the stores are familiar to me but some definitely deserve furthur exploration, like the Marimekko store!

This book is full of great content, but the design makes it hard to find and exhausting to look through. The book isn't organized into relevant sections like spas, restaurants etc., instead it's in alphabetical order and there isn't even a table of contents. The page layouts are quite busy and the type is too big and too crammed in.

Okay, I got that out of my system. I don't want to knock this book too much because I do think the content is great and it's inspiring to see how many creative successful business women there are in Vancouver.
